Discover the Dinosaure Parc at Azur in the Landes region of France

At Azur-Lac above the Etang de Soustons, just a stone’s throw from our campsite in the Landes, Dinosaures Parc plunges the Landes forest tens of millions of years into the world of prehistoric giants.
The park takes you on a timeless journey through life-sized reproductions of the dinosaurs that populated the earth during the Cretaceous and Jurassic eras.

The site also offers a wide range of dinosaur-themed attractions and activities that are both fun and educational.
An open-air show is performed several times a day; children can try their hand at waking up a large herbivore; the ciné-dino features a documentary on the life and times of the dinosaurs.
An educational archaeological dig site has been set up so that children can learn about digging techniques and discover buried fossils and bones for themselves. A large labyrinth is also set up on the site: you have to answer quizzes and riddles about dinosaurs to have a chance of getting out!
